Worry
Worry is a cycle. First you worry about a person or thing. You ruminate on that for awhile until you feel your heart beat and panic, panic, panic. Then you realize that worrying is unhealthy and you start to worry about worrying.
So you try to stop worrying, because it's unhealthy. Then you start worrying about trying to STOP your worry, because they you won't be ready for the doom that you just KNOW is going to occur.

Mangled Fingers
It's funny when you think you found
what you are looking for,
but you're just typing, typing, typing, away
with mangled fingers.
You think you've won,
but you aren't a winner.
You think you've seen the sun,
but you're just burning, and you're thinner.
You think you've found your soul
but it was sold to the demon with blue eyes;
he cried inside, but had a hateful grin,
twisted and tormented.
You thought this could be
prevented, but your face is now demented.
The glass is shattering
under your fingernails;
time to seek shelter
before it hails,
before it all comes crashing down,
down, down, down, on top of you.

And ever
I think the claws of the ocean pulled me in
floating forever
and ever and ever and ever
down
down
down
I haven't seen the color of my face in awhile
What is that like?

Walls
Softly, I wait in the darkness;
behind the walls that were shambled together,
breathlessly tightening the air in my chest cavity,
aching for when my fingers will reach for the sky.

Trauma Verse
Wake up the moment:
you hear the sound of your own heart beating in your ears
focus on the internal screaming in your sunken lungs
claw at the thoughts in your over-focused mind
tear at the strands you have left on your sad little head

Ink
Peel, itch - don't scratch.
The burn, the twitch.
The ink of beauty,

consume me endorphin rush.

Rainbow Eyes
Breath - gasp.
Cold, warm, sweat - shivers.
Heart - pounds.
Sparkling distortions.
Loss of control - cognition.
Fear - gasp.

30 Signs of a Toxic Friend
Please note that although I am studying Psychology, I am in on way a professional (yet). This list is based on personal experience and literature that I have studied in my free time. I noticed that not a whole lot of information is out there related to toxic friendships due to toxicity often being discussed for romantic relationships. So here is my list, which I may continue to add to in the future.
1. They don't stop when you ask them to.
Consent is not just for romantic relationships. Consent is for friendships too. If you ask them to stop invading your space, stop talking about a personal piece of information that you told them about, they do NOT respect you as much as they should.
2. They compliment you one day and criticize you another to keep you on your toes.
Healthy friendships are not supposed to be rocky. Just like any relationship, you may have your arguments, but if your friend is deliberately trying to mess with you constantly to keep you on an emotional roll

Literature
Deception
I'm tired of living the lie
around you
Smiling
while you cut the ones I love open
Friendship
is just an echo
Cracked
My mind aches
My bones are shaking
At this point I WANT to break
to end this game
end the madness
My mask hurts
it's filled with needles on the inside
I don't know what's worse
Your lie or mine
I'm not fine
My nightmares have me questioning
Everything I am
Everything I do
My inner self

But what about my mask?
Trembling in my heart,
I waver.
Am I enough?
"You're more than enough."
Am I worthy?
"You're more than worthy."
I'm scared.
"I know you'll be okay."
I pull close into his warm embrace.
I'm afraid, so afraid that I put up walls, can you see me?
He says with his eyes, 'I can see you'.

Lips of awe
Your hand glides to my face,
I feel a sweet surrender,
my hips tingle with laughter
as you press your lips into mine.
Your face beams as you gently say, "I love you",
the air I breathe is so warm
as you pull me in to kiss me again.
I felt your lips whisper "Forever" with its intentions.

Literature
I miss my finger bones
Water stained eyelids,
twisted wrists, aching.
Tiny finger bones,
broken.
Tiny cornea scratches,
feet rooted to the earth.
Whispers wasted,
tastes like salt.
Weary rage filled expressions,
gazing into dusk.

Nightsong
The mare meets me at night,
dancing on its pitch black hooves
asking me if I understand.
I wake to catch my breath
as it attempts to consume my lungs
with its gluttonous teeth.

Nobody knew
Eyes shatter in the rising sun.
Dreams scatter, ceasing to matter.
The whispering blood in my heart
dies out.

Literature
Violent Poetry
You cannot steal my breath
and suck me dry.
You cannot shatter my corneas
like fragile glass.
I'm a fucking soldier.
You cannot rip my lungs out
and stuff them inside my heart.
I've wrecked myself enough times
to know this pain.
You know nothing.
